It’s just not the same.
Gettysburg is not meant to be seen in the snow. It is just not the same. It should be hot and sticky to be truly appreciated. This is what I told myself anyway as the club made plans to return home early. The projected snowstorm would engulf the entire area we would need to drive through to get home. And the mountains of Pennsylvania are no place to be in a white out.
Instead of returning Tuesday as planned, the History Club spent three of the six hours we intended in Washington, DC then returned to Gettysburg where we got in our cars and drove home. Thankfully, we did not run into any snow until we were about five miles outside of Batavia. It was a little sad to cut things short, but we were all home safe.
